Where ever you are tonight, stop to take a moment to think about those things that have made your life better. Those things that you are thankful for. Even the unexpected blessings.
I find that the last year has put me in a reflective mood. It seems like I am more or less constantly reflecting on where I am, what I’m doing and what I’ve done. Sometimes I discover something new about myself, or those around me. Sometimes I accept a truth I’ve denied to myself. Sometimes I simply marvel at the passage of time and how my life has changed. Mostly though, I find myself thankful for where I’ve ended up.
I think it’s safe to say that the me of 20 years ago not only wouldn’t have, couldn’t have, imagined the me of today being where I am right now. That younger me would no doubt be a little disappointed with some of the choices I’ve made. That’s cool. I know that kid, he’s kind of a dumbass. I don’t have a high regard for his opinion. I think I made the right choices. When I watch this little man grow, I know I made the right choices.
I am very thankful for my boy, for my lady, for my family. I hope, whomever you are, regardless of your circumstances, that you have something to be thankful for. I do, and I want everyone to feel as good as he makes me feel.
